Disney's Bob Iger & John Williams Awarded Honorary Knighthood by Late Queen Elizabeth II

Former Disney CEO Bob Iger and legendary Star Wars composer John Williams are the latest members to receive an honorary knighthood by the Late Queen Elizabeth II.

Iger, who received his honor as part of his contributions to U.S.-U.K. relations, remembered Queen Elizabeth II and her “extraordinary life and service” in a statement.

It is one of the great honors of my life to have the honorary Knight of the British Empire conferred on me by Queen Elizabeth II before she passed. I have great affection for the people of the UK & have always appreciated and been inspired by their extraordinary contributions.

Bob also congratulated Star Wars composer John Williams for receiving his knighthood for services to film music as well.
